Teleperformance USA, a call center based out of Salt Lake City, allegedly violated the FLSA by:

  • Failing to pay for breaks that were less than 30 minutes in length
  • Failing to pay for time spent by employees waiting for work areas to become accessible even though their shifts already had started

In addition, a small number of employees were misclassified as salaried exempt under the FLSA.

The settlement includes workers in the following states: Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

The Department of Labor (DOL) reported that Teleperformance USA cooperated and worked quickly and effectively to resolve all issues identified.
